Input

The translation process in the old App had a button to display what languages the user had set. Pressing button created a dialog box with two language dropdowns. Those dropdowns brought the user to another page where they could select a language.

My redesign put these dropdowns on the homepage to serve as the display and enable the user to change their selections up front.

Translation

This was just a basic style and hierarchy cleanup. However, this afforded us an opportunity to message the user about our new ‘Conversation Mode’ feature.
